Effect Of Chiropractic Care On Mobility

Mobility is one of those things that you do not realize is important until you need it. Losing a small amount of mobility in the back can affect every aspect of your life.

There is one shocking truth about mobility no one talks about…

Chiropractic Adjustments in Sacramento CA can increase mobility WITHOUT hours of stretching!

Will a chiropractor in Sacramento CA help with mobility?

Yes, the studies unequivocally show that chiropractic care helps with mobility. In a survey, we ran in our Sacramento Chiropractic office last year we found that in more than 80% of patients who did not have underlying conditions inhibiting mobility there was a measurable increase in both active and passive range of motion after adjustments. What we found in our office turned out to be strikingly similar to what was found in studies done by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. (References below)

Can a chiropractor fix range of motion?

Very often, Chiropractors can help with range of motion. Whether the range of motion lost was due to misalignment or not, having spinal manipulative therapy, or Chiropractor Adjustments can usually help. Often physical therapists are seen as experts in improving Range of Motion, however, their practice focuses on increasing mind-to-muscle connection, stretching, and rehabilitating muscles. Although all of those things are important, if the body is out of alignment it can suffer injury when stretching and exercising. There are certain types of range of motion issues that require physical therapists and others that require chiropractic care. Call your primary care provider, or reach out to our Sacramento CA Chiropractic office to see if chiropractic care is right for you.

If you experienced a reduction of mobility caused by an injury like a car accident or fall, it may be due to your back being out of alignment. Our office helps countless people with mobility issues, and we celebrate their success stories.

How long does it take for a chiropractor to improve mobility?

Often we have patients who have an increase in mobility as quickly as the first adjustment. Immediate results are actually not uncommon with Chiropractic Care. A study conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information found that: immediately increased mobility often caused an instant reduction of headaches and other pain. Unfortunately, It can take several visits to have permanent results. The reason permanent results can take longer is that we need to correct the underlying issues that are causing the loss of mobility. The time it takes to have long-term mobility truly depends on the severity of your health condition.
